The Finnish sauna, also known as a dry sauna, is the hottest of all saunas. The temperature ranges from 70 to 100°C and the humidity is 10%. The humidity may be increased by pouring water on hot stones on the fireplace. Aromatic oils can be added to the water used for pouring over the stones, thus providing aromatherapy. A sauna session should be regarded as a relaxing activity. They provide a pleasant environment where we can unwind, get rid of daily stress, and help our bodies to rid themselves of accumulated toxins. Visiting saunas is not only relaxing, but also has health benefits.
While spending 10 to 20 minutes in a sauna, your heart rate increases by 50–70%, just like when you perform physical activities such as speed walking. This also affects blood pressure, as when you’re in a sauna, your blood vessels expand to accommodate an increased blood flow.
A sauna session accelerates the blood flow to the extremities. People with circulation issues and cold feet will definitely benefit from a visit to the sauna.
A sauna session also has an excellent effect on the skin. The skin receives 50–70% more blood and the nutrients that it brings, and these nutrients then enter the subcutaneous tissue and the epidermis. This results in shiny and healthy skin.
Increased perspiration causes your skin pores to open and a lot more toxins than usual can be excreted.
Visiting a sauna has an effect on your circulation, it detoxes the body, boosts your heart rate and digestion. Regular visits to saunas increase your resistance to winter illnesses, particularly colds, and help with asthma-related and bronchial conditions.
Spending time in the sauna alleviates rheumatism and lower back pain issues.
The temperatures in the infrared sauna range from 50 to 60°C.
In this type of sauna, the body also heats up in depth, so detoxification is up to three times more intensive than in a conventional sauna, and the calorie consumption is also a few times higher. The infrared sauna has a therapeutic effect on ailments such as rheumatism, arthritis, and skin diseases. Infrared heaters emit energy which penetrates up to 4 cm into the tissues of the body. The radiation wavelength is adjusted to that of the body, so the body absorbs close to 93% of the infrared rays.
The IR sauna is therefore much more effective and has an in-depth effect. The lower temperature is also significantly safer for people with cardiovascular issues, for whom Finnish saunas are not recommended. Visiting IR saunas helps to re-establish a balance in the body, which helps with headaches, exhaustion, low or high blood pressure, asthma, bronchitis, etc.
